Date::Parse - Parse date strings into time values
$time = str2time($date);
($ss,$mm,$hh,$day,$month,$year,$zone) = strptime($date);
Date::Parse is capable of parsing dates in several languages, these are English, French, German and Italian. Changing the language is done via a static method call, for example
will cause Date::Parse to attempt to parse any subsequent dates in German.
This is only a first pass, I am considering changing this to be
$lang = Date::Language->new('German'); $lang->str2time("25 Jun 1996 21:09:55 +0100");
I am open to suggestions on this.
